Aston Martin produced the DBS V8 from April 1970 to May 1972 and the chassis numbers ran from DBSV8/10001/R to DBSV8/10405/RCA.
The DBSV8 was capable of over 150mph and had new 15" light alloy bolt-on wheels and Girling ventilated discs.
The AMV8 was changed extensively between 1972 and 1988 but for simplicity can be grouped in four variations.
AMV8 1972-1973 (Bosch Fuel Injection)
The AMV8 (Bosch Fuel Injection) was produced from April 1972 to July 1973 with chassis numbers running from V8/10501/RCA to V8/10789/LCA.
This was the first car produced after the David Brown era and hence lost the DB status, though the first 19 cars retained the 'David Brown Aston Martin' bonnet badge.
A total of 288 cars were made all retaining the mechanical Bosch fuel injection system.
AMV8 1973-1978 (Weber Carburettors)
The AMV8 (Weber Carburettors) version was produced from August 1973 to September 1978 with chassis numbers running from V8/11002/RCA to V8/12031/RCAS.
Significantly the Bosch fuel injection was replaced by four twin-choke downdraught Weber carburettors, this required a deeper bonnet bulge.
A total of 969 cars were made despite production stopping between December 1974 and Spring 1976 whilst the company was in receivership.
AM Oscar India V8 1978-1986
The 'Oscar India' was produced from Oct 1978 to January 1986 with chassis numbers running from V8SOR 12032 to V8SOR 12499.
The bonnet scoop was replaced with a smooth hump over the Weber carburettors and an aerodynamic spoiler was built into the boot lid.
There were 291 of these cars made.
AM Oscar India EFI V8 1986-1989
The electronic fuel injection 'Oscar India' was produced from January 1986 to October 1989 with chassis numbers running from V8SCR 12500 to V8VKR 12701.
Only 59 of these cars were made; the almost flat bonnet identifies this model which was due to the new electronically controlled Weber fuel injection system.
During the production of the AMV8 there were a number of Vantage, Volante and USA Cosmetic Variations, including a Prince of Wales version with extra body styling and a Zagato Vantage/Volante.
These cars made up a total of 1308.
The V8 Lagonda was produced from August 1974 to the end of 1989; a total of 645 were built with 30% going to the Middle East and 25% each to the UK and USA.
Essentially there were four series of the V8 Lagonda which started with David Brown's four door DBSV8 variant and finished with William Towns’ rounded off series four car.
